Secondary education in developing countries is largely based on obsolete teaching methods and technologies. The aim of this paper is to analyze the use and preferences of mobile technologies for the needs of education among the high school population, with special emphasis on social media. The paper presents researches conducted in 2016 and 2020 in one high school, based on the analysis of questionnaires on the practice and preferences of using mobile technologies and social media for educational purposes. Results obtained show that the advantages of mobile learning in high school practice are still not sufficiently utilized, since students rarely use the Internet on mobile phones or tablets to acquire new knowledge or information in the educational process. It is noticeable that the trends in the use of information technology in domestic high schools are at approximately the same level as in other countries, as well as that there is room for improving the application of modern information technology in education process. The results of the research are important for future studies, since this was conducted on a sample of high school of economic students, and the possibilities of applying this method of work on different educational profiles arises.
